Exploring Symmetry with GeoGebra

GeoGebra is a free, multi-platform software package combining dynamic geometry, algebra and calculus. You can use it in a lab environment, or for teacher-led classroom demonstrations.  It can be used as a standalone system, or you can easily generate interactive web pages for student exploration outside of class. 

This web site deals with using GeoGebra to create interactive explorations of plane symmetry. Try out some of GeoGebra's interactive features in the mini-applet at the right, or by clicking on the following links:
